A digital thermometer is a device used to measure the body temperature of a patient by
means of a transducer coupled with an electric signal amplification, conditioning,
and display unit.

Battery cover
LCD display
Safety Information:
• Use of this device is not intended to be a substitute for consultation with your
• Read the enclosed instructions carefully to ensure accurate temperature readings.
Temperature readings are affected by many factors including excercise, drinking
hot or cold beverages prior to taking a reading, as well as technique.
• High prolonged fever requires medical attention especially for young children.
Contact your physician.
• Do not allow children to walk or run during temperature taking. The probe could
present a hazard. Oral, underarm, and rectal temperatures vary by approximately
1°F (0.5°C)
• WARNING: Keep battery out of children’s reach. Swallowing battery could be
harmful.Battery should not be recharged or placed into extreme heat as it may
• CAUTION: Do not bite, pull, or bend the probe out of shape.
• CAUTION: When inserting the unit (for oral and rectal use), insert gently.
• CAUTION: Do not boil unit. Follow cleaning instructions outlined in this instruction sheet.
• CAUTION: Do not take axillary temperature through patient’s clothing. Direct
probe cover to skin contact is required.
• CAUTION: Do not autoclave. Please note the cleaning procedures described in
this manual.
How to take temperature:
1. Place a probe cover carefully over the tip
(Figure 1).
2. Push the Power button to turn the unit on.
The LCD window will briefly display 188.8 F
Figure 1
as an internal test.
The unit will then briefly display the last read temperature.
3. The unit is ready for a temperature reading when l o F is displayed.
An E r r message in the window indicates your unit is not functioning properly.
The °F/°C symbol will flash during the duration of the measurement time.
4. The unit will beep when the reading is complete in approximately 10 seconds.
If you remove the thermometer early, the LCD will display - - - F and the unit will
beep.Turn the unit off and back on to take a new reading.
5. Push the Power button to turn the unit off. This will prolong the battery life.
If you do not turn the unit off, it will shut off automatically in approximately
8 minutes.
Oral use (for children 4 years and older):
1.Do not drink hot or cold fluids, exercise or perform other activities that will raise or lower temperature readings when
compared to your normal, average temperature.
The mouth should remain closed up to 5 minutes before attempting a reading.
2.Place the probe tip well under the tongue as indicated (Figure
2). Probe should not be moved during measurement.
Figure 2
3.Instruct children not to bite down on the probe.
4.The peak temperature should be reached in approximately 10 seconds.
Opening the mouth or improper placement of the probe tip could result in
a longer time for a reading or an inaccurate reading.
Rectal use
(Commonly used for babies, young children or when it is difficult to take an oral or underarm temperature):
1.After placing the probe cover on the thermometer, lubricate with a water-soluble jelly
or petroleum jelly.
2.Gently insert the probe tip no more than 1/2 inch or 1.3 cm into the rectum.
Do not force the tip into the rectum if resistance is encountered.
3.Dispose of the used probe cover and wash the thermometer as recommended.
4.The peak temperature should be reached in approximately 10 seconds.
Underarm (Axillary) use:
1. Wipe underarm with a dry towel.
2. Place probe tip in armpit and bring arm down against the body.
3. The probe should be pointing upward in the same direction as your body if possible.
4. The time required for an accurate underarm temperature may be longer depending on
placement of the probe
and closure of the arm against the body.
Operation of the °F - °C feature (How to change the measuring scale):
1. Turn the unit off.
2. Hold Power until the LCD displays either C
or F
3. Push the Power button to switch between °F and
°C. After two seconds, the unit will set to the currently displayed scale. When l o F is displayed,
the unit is ready to take a temperature.
Changing the battery:
1. When the unit displays “ ”, the battery needs to
be replaced.
2. With the unit off, carefully unscrew the battery

cover, slide
it off, and remove the old battery (Figure 3).
3. Insert a new LR41 battery with the “+” symbol facing back of thermometer.
